With the old Platform, there was a section for reporting Spam to report spam listings. I could not find it here. Can you advise please?

Hi,
Thank you for your reply. I see that that form is limited to reporting wrong name, address, number and website. Is it correct to assume reporting a fake/spam listing should be under "bussiness name" ?


Thank you

Good question,
 
Yes, this is what I do since there is no option such as "Entire listing is spam".

Some google my business listings are violating the google naming policy by having keywords in the title of the business and with no any real business name. This will made an unfair advantage for the violator and it will make unfair playing field for the whom follow the google guidelines.  Will that be fair with google ? No any actions they have taken until now. 

Google has reviewed some of the suggestions I have made removing keywords from their names. But the giants stay unchanged. What is the policy behind this?
